We will be meeting Wednesday, July 25th at 10:00 am at the library to discuss Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. I hope you enjoyed this great book. I am encouraging you to bring something that you might give to Henry to keep if you were Keiko.
One of the members of our group, Alison Flood, will be moving to Nevada next month. She will be with us for this meeting.
Our next book is The Alchemist. The copies are in and have been purchased by the Friends of the Library in memory/honor of several dedicated volunteers who are: Helen Bayer, Judy Bird, Elizabeth Eisele, Kay Ford, Shirley Selepes, and Elizabeth Smith. I will have an envelop to collect donations from any of you if you are interested in donating to the Friends of the Library. After all, we are fortunate to be a part of this group and borrow books for free!
Hope to see you all there!
Tickets to the Eddie Ellis event on August 19th are now available at the library. There is limited seating so get your tickets early. Eddie will begin speaking at 2pm at the library. He will be signing and selling books. The tickets are $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members.
For those who do not know Eddie Ellis, he is a well known author who has written on the history of Havelock and Craven County. He has spent time in this part of the world. He does have a website that is easy to find. He will be speaking on newly researched material regarding Havelock during the Civil War and will talk about spies that operated here.
We are pleased to have him as a guest of our Friends group and look forward to this special event. Hope to see you there!
Refreshments will be served.
We had a wonderful time yesterday at the Havelock-Craven County Public Library during the Libraries Rock Adult Summer Reading Program. We learned about different kinds of music; from classical to rock, and composers to rock bands. We even tried our hands matching the songs to singer(s). Congratulations to Byron Hopkins for getting them all right. Also the Name that Tune activity was more difficult that we all had thought. Many thanks to Mary and Claire for doing all the research and giving us tons of information to process.
Join us next week, Monday, July 30, 2018 at 1:30 pm for our next meeting.
